  • Description


    We are a family of 4 (Mother and 3 boys), living on a large and private suburban property 10 minutes drive to Cairns City. I work 4 days a week and my boys go to school 5 days a week.

    Evenings are either very quiet or very busy depending on whether my boys are home or not. We enjoy having visitors to our home as there is plenty of space and it gives us an opportunity to learn more about other parts of the world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Cairns area is rich in first nation's culture and biodiversity with the Great Barrier Reef and Ancient Rainforests right at our doorstep. The region hosts many eco/indigenous tourism experiences. Staying in our family home would give you the opportunity to gain insight into family life in Far North Queensland.

    I have not spent time in the garden and need help getting the garden under control, planting out some new garden beds and vegetable gardens, mulching, composting etc. I also would love some help with general maintenance around the house as well as some landscaping and DIY projects if I had a guest with those skills. Creating and cooking family meals is also another skill which would be greatly appreciated in my home for the right guest.
